Mason Plumlee '09 Makes USA Basketball Team

Congratulations to Mason Plumlee '09, who is now a member of USA Basketball's national team along with 11 other NBA pros. He will represent the USA in Spain for the upcoming FIBA Basketball World Cup August 30 - September 14, 2014.

“It’s quite an honor to be added to the National Team.” Mason said. “I am very much looking forward to... representing our country as a member of USA Basketball.” 

Managing director Jerry Colangelo stated that selecting the athletes was a grueling process. "Since taking over the USA Basketball Men's National Team program in 2005, this was without doubt the most difficult selection process we've gone through... I can't stress enough the outstanding effort and commitment that has been given by each finalist."

“It’s been a great experience, and whatever happens, I’m grateful for the opportunity to work out with the team,” Plumlee said after Team USA’s 112-86 exhibition victory over Puerto Rico at Madison Square Garden. 

While at Christ School, Mason helped lead the Greenies basketball team to three NCISAA 3-A championships, posted 20 double-doubles as a senior, and led Christ School in three statistical categories – scoring (15.3 points a game), rebounds (10.1 a game) and blocks (2.5 a game). In 2009 Mason was named WNC Player of the Year.

Team USA opens up World Cup action on August 30 against Finland.

Congratulations, Mason!

Football Season Kicks Off With Size

We're excited to kick off the 2014 football season at Christ School. Head football coach Mark Moroz has been grooming the team since early August, and states that the Greenies “have great size on the line this year. Most college teams would be jealous of the type of line we’re going to have.”

Three of the linemen (seniors Walker Lanning, Austin Cooke and Malik Johnson are college Division I prospects.

Malik Johnson ’14 reflected on the growth of the team during preseason: "Everything has been a lot more intense… And there's also a good family feel to this team, more so than the past.”

Walker Lanning ’14, an NCISAA 3-A all-state pick in 2013, is Western North Carolina's most highly-recruited senior lineman — the former All-WNC selection from Henderson County has scholarship offers from Western Carolina, Albany, Youngstown State, Liberty and William & Mary.

The varsity football team has a 28-6 record under coach Mark Moroz, who enters his fourth year here at Christ School.

The Greenies's season opener is August 29 at Rabun Gap. On September 5, they will host a home opening doubleheader versus the PAC Panthers: JV kicks off 5:30 p.m. followed by varsity at 8:00 p.m.
